Welcome to my website!
You found it either because you are interested in my Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project or because you are interested in my JMT hike, which I will undertake to raise funds for my Eagle Scout project.
My name is Daniel Kopisch and I am currently a Life Scout in Troop 109 in Menlo Park, California.
For my Eagle Scout Project I will replace all 53 posts along "The Great Spirit Path" Sculpture at Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park.
When discussing ways for raising the necessary funds of nearly $3,000 with friends, a friend said "Other people walk or bike to raise money for fighting cancer, diabetes, etc; so why don't you walk to raise money for your Eagle Scout project?" I was wondering how far I should walk to "earn" that amount of money.
I thought about it and discussed it with my parents. So the idea was born to hike the complete John Muir Trail for 222 miles during my summer vacation. If I could find enough people to sponsor each mile with roughly 10 cent, I would be able to raise the required money.
